cool and gratifying that people still remember the band
and the music we made. It freaks me out after all these
years to still bump into people who were fans.
called Eric and Terri, who appear to have pretty much
the same attitude about a reunion as I do, which is
one has talked to Janet in years, so we don't have any
idea about her whereabouts or interest level.
the three of us, none is philosophically opposed to
the idea, but it would have to be a good, non-lame reunion,
which would require a level of work and commitment that
none of us is capable of at present. For better or worse,
Tribe wasn't really the sort of band that could rehearse
a couple times and pull off a decent set. Just reconstituting
the arrangements and getting everyone's instrumental
and vocal chops together would be an incredible amount
of work, which isn't likely to happen anytime soon.
and Terri have a baby daughter and high-intensity game
industry jobs, and I'm in a similar situation, with
2 boys and multiple game projects to manage. There is
no way we could do a reunion justice at this point in
time, even if Janet was up for it.
to throw cold water on the reunion initiative, but there
you have it. In the future -- who knows? It would be
fun to play those songs again.
I'm posting, here's a few factoids that might interest
has built a career as a top-tier game music composer
and sound effects designer, and has done some amazing
scores in various musical genres for some major titles
over the last 8 years or so. If you don't play computer
games, you won't really come across his stuff, but it
is worth checking out. Some of the stuff he's done:
1/2/3 (3 is not out yet, but should be out this fall)
System Shock 2 (creepiest game ever)
has done level design, scriptwriting and voice-over
work for bunch of different titles, most prominently
the System Shock and Thief series, which she is still
involved with. She did the voice-acting for one of the
most renowned villains in computer-game history, the
evil, insane Shodan from System Shock 1 and 2.
in a band! Well, sort of a band; we're still writing
songs and rehearsing, at a pretty relaxed pace. If we
get to the point where we do a show, I'll post here.
It's not particularly Tribe-like, but it's really fun
to play again, after not having done so for many years.
